Snowboarders flock to Afton Alps opening day

Kayla Goetsch and Kayla Tuckner, from Lake Elmo, said they had been waiting all summer for the first day at Afton Alps

It was a day that couldn't come soon enough for the folks out at Afton Alps on Wednesday afternoon.

It was the day that the ski, snowboard and tubing venue opened its slopes for the first day of the season.

With an official opening time of 3 p.m., there were already dozens of snowboarders making the most of every minute on the slopes just a half-hour after opening. And they kept on coming.
